History of Savannah State University 

On November 26, 1890, enabling legislation was passed by the Georgia General Assembly to establish a 
school for the education and training of colored students, which was to operate as a part of the University 
of Georgia. One hundred and twenty years later, the college has become Savannah State University, the 
oldest public historically black university in Georgia. 

A preliminary session of the new college was held in the Baxter Street School Building in Athens, Georgia, 
with Richard Robert Wright, Sr., as principal. On October 7, 1891, the new college, named the Georgia 
State Industrial College for Colored Youths, moved to its present location in Thunderbolt, Georgia. Wright 
was president, and there were five faculty members: Loring B. Palmer, A.B.; Frank Cobb, A.B.; Alexander 
Ashton; Reverend Leigh B. Maxwell, A.B.; Reverend James M. Simms, proctor and steward; and Decatur 
Suggs, vice-president. 

The university awarded its first baccalaureate degree to Richard R. Wright, Jr., in 1898. He went on to 
become the first black man to receive the Ph.D. in sociology from the University of Pennsylvania (1911), 
and later to become the president of historic Wilberforce University. During Wright's tenure as president 
(1890-1921), President William McKinley (1898) and President William Howard Taft (1912) visited the 
campus and spoke to students and faculty in the Peter W. Meldrim Hall. 

Cyrus Gilbert Wiley (class of 1899), the first alumnus to become president of the university (1921-1926), 
followed Wright. Benjamin F. Hubert, who came to Georgia State College from Tuskegee Institute, served 
as president from 1926-1947. During his tenure, the college became both a full-time, degree-granting 
institution, without high school and normal programs, and a member of the University System of Georgia 
(1932). The name of the college was changed to Georgia State College in 1932. In 1950, the name of the 
college was changed to Savannah State College, and, in 1996, the name was changed to Savannah State 

The Significance of the Academic Mace 

Observing the centuries-old convocation procedures, each Marshal in the Savannah State 
University Academic Procession carries an official mace, which is indicative of the power, 
dignity, and magisterium vested in the University. The mace is a club-shaped staff that 
originated in the Middle Ages as a weapon. Eventually, it gained a ceremonial character 
and is presently employed most often by legislative forums and academic enterprises. 

The official mace and stand of Savannah State University were designed and constructed 
from mahogany by Dr. Ernest S. Brown, Associate Professor Emeritus of Civil Engineering 

Savannah State University Motto 

The University's motto is "Lux et Veritas" (Light and Truth). 


Academic Regalia 

Modern academic dress has evolved from a type of apparel prescribed by English Medieval Universities to 
distinguish their schools from the lay person in dress at a time when everybody wore robes or gowns. When 
American colleges and universities desired to adopt some suitable system of academic apparel a half century 
ago, it seemed best to agree on some definite system which all might follow. Accordingly, this attire has 
consisted of the cap, the gown, and the hood, the latter two now differing according to the degree the wearer 
has received. 

The modern cap, in academic dress, has the same design for all degrees: black and square-shaped with a tassel 
hanging from the center. However, the color of the tassel usually differentiates the field of study for which the 
degree was granted, the gold tassel being worn by doctors or by presidents of colleges and universities. However 
the black tassel is correct for all degrees. 

The gown, unlike the cap, differs appreciably in design according to the degree conferred on the wearer. The 
gown for the bachelor's degree has pointed sleeves. It is designed to be worn closed. The gown for the master's 
degree, worn open or closed, has an oblong sleeve, open at the wrist, like the others. The sleeve base hangs 
down in the traditional manner. The rear part of its oblong shape is square cut, and the front part has an arc 
cut away. The doctor's gown, worn open or closed, has long sleeves faced with velvet; three bars of velvet are 
midway the sleeves. The trimmings of the doctor's gown may be black or the color associated with the field of 

The hood, while not an article of dress, is however, the most distinctive feature of the academic attire. It is a 
black, cowl-shaped badge or adornment with an oval opening and is worn down the back. It enables one to 
quickly determine not only the degree held by the wearer but also the college or university from which he or she 
is graduated. The colors lining the hood and the size and the shape of the hood make this distinction. The 
bachelor's and master's hoods are three feet and three and a half feet in length, respectively; the doctor's 
hood is four feet in length and is made with a wide panel. Hoods may be worn for only those degrees actually 
held by the wearers. 

Members of the governing body of a college or university, and they only, whatever their degrees may be, are 
entitled to wear doctor's gowns (with black velvet), but their hoods may be only those of degrees actually held 
by the wearers or those especially prescribed for them by the institution. 

In some colleges and universities, it is customary for the president, chancellor, or chief officer to wear a costume 
similar to that worn by the head of a foreign university. 

The chief marshal may wear a specially designed costume approved by the institution. 

For all academic purposes, including trimmings of doctor's gowns, edging of hoods, and tassels of caps, the 
color associated with different subjects as prescribed by the revised American Intercollegiate Code is as follows: 

Arts, Letters, Humanities White Oratory (Speech) Silver Gray 

Business Drab Philosophy Dark Blue 

Economics Copper Physical Education Sage Green 

Education Light Blue Public Administration Peacock Blue 

Law Purple Science Golden Yellow 

Library Science Lemon Social Work Citron 

Music Pink Theology Scarlet 

At Savannah State University, the lining of the hood has an orange chevron on a blue background to represent 
school colors. A faculty member wears the color of his or her alma mater. 


Commencement Speaker 

Frederick S. Humphries, Ph.D. 

President Emeritus, Tennessee State University 
President Emeritus, Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University 

Frederick S. Humphries, Ph.D., president emeritus of Tennessee 
State University (TSU) and Florida Agricutural and Mechanical 
University (FAMU), is the guest speaker. 

A native of Apalachicola, Fl., Humphries graduated magna 
cum laude from FAMU in 1957 with a Bachelor of Science 
degree in chemistry. Humphries was also a distinguished military 
science graduate and is reported to have been the first black officer 
commissioned into the Army Security Agency, the Army's signal 
intelligence branch. After two years in the military, he entered 
the University of Pittsburgh as a teaching assistant in chemistry, 
became a graduate research fellow in 1960, and earned his 
doctoral degree in chemistry in 1964. He was the first black 
student in the university's history to earn a doctorate in that 

The Tennessee Board of Regents named Humphries president 

of TSU in 1974, amid growing controversy over a proposed, 

new multi-million dollar facility for the night school extension 

center at the nearby University of Tennessee at Nashville 

(UTN). Humphries and others argued in U.S. District Court 

that expanding the predominantly white UTN alongside the 

traditionaly black TSU fostered competition for the white 

students and perpetuated segregation. The court ruled the two schools should merge, with UTN placed under the 

administration of Humphries and TSU. TSU became the surviving institution, and Humphries earned a national 

reputation for fighting for historically black colleges and universities and opportunities for minorities. 

Humphries left TSU in 1985 to serve as president at FAMU. During his 16-year tenure, enrollment more than 
doubled; the university attracted 657 National Achievement Scholars; the number of science and engineering 
students increased tenfold; and doctoral degree programs increased from one in 1985 to ten in 2000. Humphries 
retired in 2001 and has been a Regent Professor at the FAMU College of Law since 2003. He is the recipient 
of countless academic, professional, and community awards, including the Drum Major for Justice Award in 
Education from the Southern Christian Leadership Conference and the Thurgood Marshall Educational 
Achievement Award.

Savannah State College Hymn 

Original words and music by J. Randolph Fisher and Hillary Hatchett 
Lyrical Revision by Ms. La Gina M. Frazier 

Let us give thanks and praises to 

Our Alma Mater, S.S.U. 

Thine honor, pride, and eminence, 

We raise in prayerful reverence. 

Guide us still from day to day, 

Be Thou mindful lest we lose our way; 

Help us know that life, short or long, 

Means unceasing work for weak and strong. 


Where Savannah meets the sea, 

Where grassy plains and palms abound, 

Where the Flow'rs are gems of loveliness, 

There S.S.U. is found. 

We adore each beauteous scene and hall, 

Our all we pledge to Thee! 

In our hearts we '11 build a shrine for You 

We hail Thee, S.S.U.!
